I worked at PresenceLearning full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing service that many children need. Good feedback system for the SLPs allowing them to manage their time and work remotely.

Cons

Typical startup with founders who only care about their vision. If you are not from Stanford, don't apply. They are heavily biased. No one except a chosen few are allowed to have input or authority, even over their own departments.

Advice to Management

Step aside, take Board of Director roles and let experienced executives take your vision to market. Or, sell to a large competitor and incubate another idea.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PresenceLearning as a contractor

    Pros

    flexible schedule, top notch therapists

    Cons

    Pay is among the worst around for therapists
    Leadership lost sight of the mission with only dollar signs in their eyes, and made several poor decisions resulting in decreased standard of care
    You are treated as an employee but paid as a contractor - this is illegal
    Management is very cliquish and secretive
    Therapists are promised work when there is none to be had
    Tow the line or be removed

    Advice to Management

    Any time you have to continually tell people about your awards and the quality of your work, that is a sure sign something is off. The quality of your services should speak for itself. Time to recognize that the "leaders" are just businessmen exploiting their "expertise" to make a buck. I left of my own free will, so don't write me off as some bitter ex employee. Something is seriously wrong with this place, and those who stand up for what is right are removed from service. BEWARE

    I have been working at PresenceLearning full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I appreciate working with students one-on-one or in groups of two. I love being able to maintain the attention of my students well with the use of head-sets, amplified volume, computer screen, and a variety of engaging and didactic activities to improve their speech and language skills. On a personal bases, I love being able to live outside the country while providing services to schools in the states.

    Cons

    Working as independent contractor means you have to set aside money on a quarterly bases for federal and state taxes, and keep all of your tax deductible receipts.
